Huge Scale Flying Boat Dornier Do X Takes Flight

The Mighty Lufthansa
Michael Bräuer owns the largest RC model of the largest flying boat in the world, the Dornier Do X. The plane is a 1:10 scale model built almost entirely of wood.
This gigantic RC plane has a 16ft wingspan, 13ft of length, and a take-off weight of 132 lbs. To support its size, the Lufthansa is fitted with twelve 10cc OS Motors on the wings.
While up in the air, the Lufthansa flies like any other RC model in the hobby. During low passes, you can hear the sound of its twelve engines doing their best to keep the plane afloat.
Bräuer did an impressive job making the Lufthansa from scratch – from the airframe, the retractable landing gear, and to the amazing decals.
